This is the first of hopefully many new mtb trails as part of the trails hub.
This is a great trail, with features that will keep all riders happy. It starts from the trail hub at the Apex Drive carpark and winds it's way down to the carpark at the base of Apex Drive. It is separated into 3 sections by fire trail crossovers. Please be aware of other trail users when crossing the fire trails

Access Info

Access from the Apex Lookout carpark. Follow trail markers.

       Riding well. Dry but coping with it well. A bit cut up through the tight berms.
